    January 2, 2022 - Very delicious, but young P-C. I wasn't expecting much from this first bottle of the 2011 vintage, but was pleasantly surprised by how wonderful it tasted. We decanted it and lit is sit for about 4 hours before consumption. It seemed a little weak initially, but then really opened up and the sweet red fruits showed nicely. Typically excellent mouthfeel and purity. Great aftertaste. Rebottled and then drank the remainder several days later. It seemed even better with a weightier feel.

    December 22, 2021 - Focused dark berries and oak in the bouquet. Graphite as well. On the palate dark berries, black olives, chocolate, tobacco, some green impressions, oak, a bit rustic. Firm acidity and firm, drying tannin. The bottle I had Sept 30th was popped and poured. The note above is about a bottle which had a five hour decant. Plenty of future in this wine. Waiting another 5 – 8+ years will be rewarding. 92 – 93++
